AALL2go Pick of the Month

Check out the AALL2go Pick of the Month, featuring Cheryl Nyberg. She talks about how she compiles her 50 state surveys for the annual Subject Compilations of State Laws.

This 59-minute PowerPoint with audio (.WMV) presentation recorded at the Dallas Association of Law Librarians 2007 spring meeting features Cheryl Nyberg, reference librarian at the University of Washington’s Gallagher Law Library. In the presentation, Nyberg discusses how she compiles her annual list of 50-state surveys for the annual Subject Compilations of State Laws. She discusses types of 50-state surveys, useful sources for finding surveys, and the areas of law that are likely to have 50-state surveys.

Although much of the presentation focuses on how State Laws is put together, the second half focuses on strategies for researchers trying to find these materials. Nyberg delves into specific research queries using online resources and common places where you can find needed information. Though many AALL members now have access to State Laws through HeinOnline, this presentation may still be useful for researchers who want to brush-up on their research skills, need a new 50-state survey, or do not have access to State Laws. Note: The PowerPoint with live links is available from Nyberg’s webspace.
